    Bus riders are asked to buy a 1-Day Pass. The 1-Day Passes, good for up to 27 hours of unlimited use, will only be for sale on board TheBus to all cash-paying passengers at the farebox.

Starting Sunday, Honolulu’s bus system will no longer accept paper transfers, asking riders who seek transfers to purchase a 1-Day Pass instead, city officials said.

The 1-Day Passes, good for up to 27 hours of unlimited use, will only be for sale on board TheBus to all cash-paying passengers at the farebox for: $5 for adults; $2.50 for youths; $2 for eligible disabled, senior, and U.S. Medicare and TheHandi-Van card holders, according to the city. Passengers should ask for the 1-Day Pass from the driver upon boarding the bus and before placing their money in the farebox, officials said.

The 1-Day passes are valid from 12 a.m. to 2:59 a.m. the next day. The passes will not be available at TheBus’s Pass Office at the Kalihi Transit Center or other outlets currently selling TheBus pass products.

For questions about the 1-Day Pass, call TheBus Information line at 848-5555 or visit thebus.org.
